D Wagner, Commanding Fifteenth Regiment Indiana Volunteers: sir: In accordance with your order to proceed on the Manlia Turnpike until I met the enemy, but not to bring on a general engagement, I marched my command of two hundred and eighty-five infantry and four dragoons, (the latter designed to be used as messengers,) on Sunday, the 8th September, at noon, out of camp, under the guidance of Dr. Singer, a Union Virginian, who, having formerly practised in this and adjoinin
Doc. 51. expedition to Ocracoke Inlet. Report of Commander Rowan. United States steamer Pawnee, Hatteras Inlet, September 18, 1861. sir: On Saturday, the 14th inst., I gave a pass to one of the people on Hatteras Island to go to Ocracoke Inlet, for the purpose of bringing his family from Portsmouth. I directed this person to examine the forts on Beacon Island and Portsmouth Island, and bring me a true report of the condition of things, the number of guns mounted, if any, and the number dismounted; whether any troops were there, and whether the gun-carriages had all been burned or not, and to report the result to me on his return. On Sunday morning, the 15th inst., the boat came alongside, with the man and his wife and children, in a destitute state. We gave them food, and the surgeon prescribed and furnished medicine for the sick of the family. The man reported that there were twenty guns in Fort Beacon, and four eight-inch shell guns at Portsmouth; that the guns we

The following is the letter from the Confederate officer above referred to: To the Commander of the Massachusetts: By order of my Government this day I have evacuated Ship Island. This my brave soldiers under my command do with much reluctance and regret. For three long months your good ship has been our constant companion. We have not exactly lived and loved together, but we have been intimately acquainted, having exchanged cards on the 9th day of July last. In leaving you to-day we beg you to accept our best wishes for your health and happiness, while sojourning on this pleasant, hospitable shore. That we may have another exchange of courtesies before the war closes, and that we may meet face to face in closer quarters, is the urgent prayer of, very truly, your obedient servant, H. W. Allen, Lieut.-Col. Commanding Ship Island. Fort Twiggs, Sept. 18, 1861.
Doc. 53. battle of Blue Mills, Mo. Col. Scott's official report. Headquarters 3D regiment Iowa Volunteers, liberty, Mo., Sept. 18, 1861. S. D. Sturgis, Brig.-Gen. U. S. A.: sir: In relation to an affair of yesterday which occurred near Blue Mills Landing, I have the honor to report: Agreeably to your orders I left Cameron at 3 P. M. of the 15th instant, and through a heavy rain and bad roads made but seven miles during that afternoon. By a very active march on the 16th I reached Centerville, ten miles north of Liberty, by sunset, where the firing of cannon was distinctly heard in the direction of Platte City, which was surmised to be from Colonel Smith's (Illinois Sixteenth) command. Had sent a messenger to Colonel Smith from Hainesville, and sent another from Centerville, apprising him of my movements, but got no response. On the 17th at 2 A. M. started from Centerville for Liberty, and at daylight the advanced guards fell in with the enemy's pickets, which they d

ion of dependent vassals, we believe that the recognition of the civil rights of citizens is the foundation of constitutional liberty, and that the claim of the President of the United States to declare martial law, to suspend the privilege of the writ of habeas corpus, and to convert every barrack and prison in the land into a bastile, is nothing but the claim which other tyrants have assumed to subjugate a free people. The Confederate States occupy Bowling Green as a defensive position. I renew the pledges of commanders of other columns of Confederate troops to retire from the territory of Kentucky on the same conditions which will govern their movements. I further give you my own assurance that the force under my command will be used as an aid to the Government of Kentucky in carrying out the strict neutrality desired by its people, whenever they undertake to enforce it against the two belligerents alike. S. B. Buckner, Brigadier-General C. S. A. Bowling-Green, Sept. 18, 1861.
